As you make your way through the various levels and areas that make up Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, you’re going to come across plenty of items, weapons, and components to pick up meaning you need to learn how to manage and increase inventory space. Some of these item will take up multiple grids in your inventory, while others will only take up one or two spaces. If you want to make the most of your inventory, and allow yourself to be able to carry more items, you’re going to have to learn how to keep everything organized, as well as what upgrades you’ll need to purchase to expand your inventory.
Expand Your Inventory
Obviously, the easiest way to fix your inventory issues is to expand the amount of spaces available in your pockets. This particular statistic is tied to a specific augmentation upgrade, which you can purchase using the Praxis Points that you earn and discover throughout the game. Open up your Inventory and navigate over to the Augmentation Upgrade tab. This is where you can use your Praxis Points to purchase additional inventory spaces, as well as other upgrades.
Once you have found the upgrade tab, locate the Arms augmentation category. You can see the different categories that each augmentation is broken up into on the left side of your screen. With the arms augmentations selected, locate the far left upgrade, and select it. This will open up the upgrades sub-upgrade area. This upgrade features three separate updates which raise your Carry Capacity upgrades to 70KG, 90KG, and 110KG respectively. This means that you can technically upgrade Adam Jensen’s inventory size to the maximum amount as early as possible, so long as you have the Praxis Points available to purchase the upgrades.
Organize Your Inventory
The toughest, but most rewarding way to fix your inventory management issues is to learn proper organization. By default, the game automatically governs where items should go when you pick them up. However, this can often lead to items leaving empty spaces all over the place, which results in you have less space available, especially if you plan to carry multiple weapons with you on each mission. The quickest way to fix this problem is to open up your inventory, locate your inventory, and then begin moving things around. We suggest placing all your weapons close together, as this will limit the additional space that they make unavailable. We’d also highly recommend only carrying one secondary weapon and one primary weapon with you until you manage to purchase some additional inventory upgrades.
Keeping your inventory in ship shape condition isn’t an easy job, and you’re going to need to spend a lot of time opening up and managing the different items that litter your pockets. Don’t sweat it too much, though. If you don’t feel up to the task, upgrading your inventory is an easy way to make sure you run into fewer looting interruptions. The only real issue is, after a while you’re going to run out of space. Luckily that can be taken care of a few simple ways.
The first way you can rid yourself of unwanted or unneeded items is to visit a vendor. One of the easiest vendors to locate is about two floors below Jensen’s apartment. So head back to Jensen’s neighborhood, locate his apartment building, and climb the stairs. It’s hard to miss the blackmarket guys standing outside the apartment looking sketchy. Head inside the apartment and talk to the vendor to boot up the shop. Then select the sell tab and start clicking away. This is a good way to earn some additional money, while also cleaning out your inventory for more useful items, like Biocells.
Another way to free up your inventory space is to head back to Jensen’s apartment and interact with the computer he keeps on the kitchen counter. Select the home smart system option, and then open the wall panels to reveal a hidden area where you can store different items you don’t need at the moment. This is a good way to hold on to weapons, software, and even other important items that you aren’t sure about selling at that point in time. The only real problem with this method is you’re going to have to come back to Jensen’s house and pick up the items if you want to hold onto them again.
No matter what you decide to do, managing your inventory and keeping things straight and orderly is the best way to ensure you run into fewer interruptions during your travels throughout the neighborhoods and areas surrounding Prague.
